We’ve spent a year indoors, and it was a bit challenging trying to contain the travel bug. TV provided us with a bit of escape from the harsh reality of it all, especially movies that got you exploring the world from the comfort of your couch!
Movies allow you to escape the world for a bit. Instead of watching the news and listening to the horrors of the world, you can relax and enjoy a story that takes place anywhere around the world!
If you’re holding out until things are a lot safer to travel, you don’t have to be bored doing it! You can enjoy a preview of the places you’ll go through the eyes of a director and kick back and relax on your couch.

6. Last Holiday (2006)
Something we’d all do if we found out we only had a short while to live, spend every last cent of it on a vacation you’ve always wanted to go on. And for Georgia Byrd, that was a winter in Europe, living it up large!
You might not be able to go anywhere, but you can definitely experience these places through your TV screen. And what’s even better is it doesn’t cost a cent, but you still get to experience the laughs and adventure!
